Northern Ireland’s biggest oval racing event of the season take place at Aghadowey Oval this weekend, headlined by the prestigious World Championship for 2.0 Hot Rods.
Also up for decision during the weekend will be the Stock Rods British Championship and Ninja Karts European Championship.
Following practice on Friday evening July 19th, racing takes place on Saturday July 20th from 4pm and then on Sunday 21st from 1pm.

2.0 Hot Rods
Portadown’s defending World Champion Jordan Rochford tops the entry for the Cherry Pipes 2.0 Hot Rods World Championship, as he aims for a hat-trick of World titles having been victorious in Scotland and England over the past two seasons. Armed with a new car this season, he will be keen to hold onto the gold roof. Recently crowned British Champion Drew McKeown from Bleary will be another favourite, alongside Irish Champion Conor Hughes (Antrim) and Wayne Woolsey, Ryan McCrory and Andy Best.

English star Jason Jackson leads the visiting entry, and ‘Boxer Jack’ as he is affectionately known is sure to go close. Essex based European Champion Ben Murray knows the Aghadowey track well and will be joined by Jack Wilks, Harry Smith, Chevy Mills and Damian Wright from England, whilst Jason Secker, Keith Brown, Frankie Cunningham and David Frame head the Scottish challenge. Cork’s Ian Riordan heads a strong Republic of Ireland invasion, fresh from winning the Inter-Nations Cup at Ipswich recently.

Stock Rods
Nutts Corner racer Mark Crawford is another chasing a hat-trick of titles, this time in the Cherry Pipes Stock Rods British Championship. Like Rochford, he has won in Scotland and England over the past two years, and will hope his local knowledge will see him make it three in a row. Mark also finished a creditable second in the recent World Championship event in Ipswich.

Glenavy’s NI points Champion Dan Shannon will be another to watch, as will Jonny Cardwell who has tasted British glory in recent times. European Champion Joe Largey is another set to shine, as will Irish Champion Stevie McNiece. Young Randalstown star Sam McNeice will be another hoping for glory, alongside Larne’s Sam Wilson and local favourite Victor McAfee.

World Champion John Smith from London hopes to make the trip across to head the English challenge, alongside former English Champion Daniel Rea, Luke Oliver, Dave Burton and George Baker. Heading a very large Scottish entry is former World title holder Siobhan Martin who always runs well at Aghadowey, alongside Dean McGill who led the recent World Final for much of the distance. Scottish Champion Gary Dean, David Crichton, Sean Naismith and Robbie Armit are also amongst the tartan travellers, whilst Paddy O’Dwyer and Sean Maher head the Republic of Ireland contingent.

Ninja Karts
Ahoghill’s recently crowned World Champion Lewis Hazlett will be the star attraction in the ABC Recovery Ninja Karts European Championship, which boasts a capacity entry from far and wide. Cullybackey’s Keegan Turtle will also be chasing his European dream, as will Co Armagh’s Jack Murphy, Larne duo Tommy Johnston and Kori Curran, Ollie Williamson (Portadown) and Portaferry’s Alan Beattie.

British Champion Jaxon York from the Midlands heads a ten strong English attack whilst Tommy Melrose and Jayden Lee Jeffrey top a quality Scottish challenge. The young stars will also race for the Irish Open Championship during the weekend.

Support Racing
The elite National Hot Rods contest the opening round of World Series NI on the Sunday afternoon, as Galgorm’s Shane Murray opens the defence of his title. Superstox, Thunder Rods and 1300 Stock Cars will also be in action during the two day festival of stock car racing.

The Neil Davison Memorial Cup for Superstox was the feature event at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday evening, June 22nd, and after a great race it fell to Loughgall’s Jamie McCann. The 2.0 Hot Rods final was won by Londonderry’s Dean McFarland, whilst Antrim’s Leyton Hughes won the Junior Productions Tullyroan Challenge Cup.
Dublin’s Stevo McGrath won the 2L National Bangers Tullyroan Challenge Cup, whilst other feature race wins fell to Magheralin’s Tam Agnew in the Lightning Rods and Tullyroan’s Davy McCall in the Classic Hot Rods.

The opening Superstox heat saw the two main NI Points Championship contenders, Lee Davison and Steven Haugh, race to first and second with a scything run from the rear of the field. Heat two again saw the star men on the march from the back, with Jamie McCann this time taking the spoils over Davison and Haugh. Going into the final race of the points season, Haugh now had just a five point advantage over Davison.
Conor Murphy got a great start to the Neil Davison Memorial Cup final, scorching ahead but the pack were chasing hime down as the laps dwindled away. McCann went through to take a fine win from the closing Davison, with Murphy hanging on in third. Fourth for Haugh was enough to seal him the Mk2 Escort Shells & Spares NI Points Championship by the slenderest of margins.

Dean McFarland continued his recent good form with a great run to win the opening 2.0 Hot Rods heat, with former World Champion Wayne Woolsey enthralling the fans with a fantastic outside run through the field. He eventually netted second after Andy Best was demoted to fourth for contact during the race. McFarland again set the pace in heat two, but was run down and passed by Ally Neill late on for the victory.
The final again saw McFarland out front, but his advantage was wiped out by a mid race caution period. That didn’t deter Dean, and on the restart he simply drove off into the distance once again for a fantastic win to complete a double for the night. An impressive Aaron Stewart took second ahead of Scott Cochrane and Neill.

The 2L National Bangers thrilled the fans all evening with some big hits and entertainment. Former World Champ Stevo McGrath from Dublin avoided the carnage to win the Tullyroan Challenge Cup from Paul Compelli and Alan Haugh as just four cars went the distance.
The first Allcomers event was a cracker, with McGrath, David Gurney and Haugh chasing the win. Gurney hit the front, but McGrath came back hard on the last bend to just snatch the win on the line. Allcomers 2 saw Gurney this time come back to take the win over Haugh and McGrath, before a superb Destruction Derby saw Noel Anderson’s Mondeo take some heavy damage before McGrath and Gurney fought it out for the win, The fans were loving it, with McGrath getting the telling blow in the finish Gurney off and take the win.

Lacey Bevan drove a superb race to just hold off Jack Morrison in the opening Junior Productions qualifier, eventually claimimg victory over Harry Minish, before Callum Doak controlled heat two to take the win over Leyton Hughes.
From pole position in the Tullyroan Challenge Cup final Hughes was dominant throughout, stretching ahead to take a super victory over the chasing Doak, Andrew Russell and Matthew Weir.

Tam Agnew was the winner of the opening Lightning Rods heat, racing home ahead of a places battle that fell to Mark Corry. Heat two saw James McKinney excel, as the Strabane man won ahead of Ross Houston and Agnew.
The feature race final was all about Agnew once again, the former ProStock World title winner racing clear to complete his double for the night ahead of Houston, McKinney and Gerry Rogers.

The Classic Hot Rods ran alongside the Lightning Rods all evening, with former World Champions Davy McCall and John Murray sharing the heat wins before McCall also took the final.

An exciting evening of non-contact oval racing was served up to the fans at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday evening, June 15th. Portadown’s Adam Heatrick raced to a heat and final success to land the Tullyroan Challenge Cup for 2.0 Hot Rods, whilst the Stock Rods Tullyroan Challenge Cup fell the way of Glenavy’s Jonny Cardwell after a commanding drive. The prestigious Golden Helmet trophy for the Junior Productions was won by Antrim’s Leyton Hughes, whilst the other feature race wins fell to Ross Houston (Waringstown) in the Lightning Rods and Zack McCombe (Kilrea) in the Thunder Rods.

The opening 2.0 Hot Rods heat saw Dean McFarland set the opening pace before Adam Heatrick slipped past to take the win. Behind McFarland in second, returnee Stephen Emerson took third. Another recent returnee to the tracks, Michael Woods, took a great win in the second heat on his first appearance of the season. Scott Cochrane came through for second ahead of Conor Hughes and newly crowned British Champion Drew McKeown.
On aggregate points Heatrick had annexed pole position for the Tullyroan Challenge Cup Final, with McKeown alongside. Heatrick quickly assumed the lead, with McKeown slipping back on the outside line. That allowed Wayne Woolsey up to second ahead of Jordasn Rochford in third. There was no threat to Heatrick’s electric pace during the race, and that was how they finished as he took a morale boosting win.

The Tullyroan Challenge Cup was also up for grabs in the Stock Rods, with the field bolstered by some very welcome visitors from Tipperary Raceway. Reuben Kernohan led the majority of the way in the opening heat, but was outfoxed in heavy backmarking traffic late on which allowed British and National Champion Mark Crawford to take the victory over Jonny Cardwell. Heat two saw a straightforward win for Adam Sloan, as the Kells racer pulled effortlessly clear to win by some distance over Tipperary pair Eoghan Burke and Jack Maher.
Cardwell quickly assumed the lead in the Tullyroan Challenge Cup final, as a puncture in the midst of the leading cars for Sam McNeice saw him go out and hamper the progress of several others. That allowed Stevie McNiece up to second ahead of Crawford. Cardwell meanwhile was clear out front and he raced home to take his third Challenge Cup win in succession, and his fifth in total, after a great night for the Glenavy driver. McNiece, Crawford, Sloan and World Champion Dan Shannon were next home.

A grid of over twenty cars took the green flag for the opening Junior Production heat, with Lacey Bevan working her way to the front late on to take the win over a flying Leyton Hughes and Charlie Johnston. Heat two saw Dylan Fegan take the win on the road, but he was docked two places to third for jumping the start which gave the win to Jack Morrison ahead of Johnston.
Johnston and Bevan shared the front row for the A McKeown and Son Ltd sponsored Golden Helmet Final, which took a second attempt to get going after drama at the first time of asking. Hughes found a way past Johnston early on the edge clear out front once they did get underway, and he went on to take a superb victory over the impressive Fegan in second. Callum Doak inherited third spot after third across the line, Scotsman Charlie Hardie, was docked two places for contact. The top three and the heat winners all received nice bonus prizes courtesy of the sponsors.

The Lightning Rods were on great form all evening, with Tam Agnew claiming the heat one win after Ross Hosuton had been docked for contact on his way to the flag. Houston was in determined mood in heat two, racing side by side with Padraig Palmer for the last number of laps before snatching the win by a nose on the finish line. Palmer and Agnew filled the top three.
The final saw more of the same, with Palmer ahead and Houston chasing him down. Once again it came to a grandstand finish, with Houston again snatching the win by a hair’s breadth on the line from Palmer. Agnew, James McKinney and Conor Doherty completed the top five.

The Thunder Rods made another of their regular visits to Tullyroan Oval, and it was Zack McCombe who claimed the first heat win ahead of Jason Darragh and Andrew McLean. McCombe repeated the feat in the second heat, winning over Irish Champion James Goldie and Darragh.
An upgrade for the final was always going to make things much more difficult for McCombe from further back in the starting line up, but as Tom Archibald set the pace Zack got the head down and reeled him in. At half distance McCombe went ahead, racing clear to complete his hat-trick for the night in fine fashion. Archibald, Adam McKinney and Darragh completed the places.

Randalstown driver Sam McNeice won the coveted William Cooke Memorial Trophy for Stock Rods at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday night, June 8th. On an evening of top quality race action across all the formulas on show, Loughgall’s Jamie McCann won the other big race of the night, the Superstox King of Aghadowey.
Ahoghill’s Lewis Hazlett was the winner in the Campbell Commercials sponsored Ninja Karts, whilst other final winners were Strabane’s Adam McKinney in the Thunder Rods and Crumlin’s Matthew Milliken in the 1300 Stock Cars.

The random draw for the opening qualifying heat for the Stock Rods William Cooke Memorial Trophy placed World Champion Dan Shannon on pole position, and he raced home to win ahead of Sam McNeice and Joe Largey. The second heat saw top runners Sam Wilson and Mark Crawford clash, with Mark Foster making the most of it to slip through the chaos to win over Crawford and defending champion Jonny Cardwell.
Foster qualified on pole for the final, and he quickly settled into top spot. McNeice was tracking his every move, and found the smallest of gaps into the Brown Trout Bend to take up the running, with Cardwell chasing him through. Cardwell then grabbed the lead in a similar move, but he attracted a warning from Race Control for contact. Jonny went on to take the flag, but was demoted two places in the final result by the Steward which elevated a deserving McNeice to the winners enclosure. Foster was classified in second ahead of Cardwell.

The Superstox formula were contesting the King of Aghadowey title, with Lee Davison setting a blistering pace to win heat one, smashing the lap record which had stood since 2017 in the process. David McMenemy and Troy Crawford chased him home. Jordan Robinson was the one to make the break in the second heat, and he took the win with the placemen the same as in heat one.
The closed grid format saw an explosive start to the King of Aghadowey final. McMenemy and Crawford as front row starters lost out, with defending champ Robinson hitting the front and stretching clear. Disaster then struck for Jordan as his engine went sick, which saw the flying Jamie McCann burst through to the lead and a well deserved victory. The three NI Points Championship protagonists, Davison, Craig McConnell and Steven Haugh had a great scrap for the places, which fell the way of Haugh as he took second ahead of Davison and McConnell.

Another big grid of Ninja Karts came to the line for three races sponsored by Campbell Commercials. Jaxon Cairns impressed out front in the first heat, surviving two restarts only to pipped at the end by Jake Barnett who won over Cairns and Lewis Hazlett. Heat two saw Cairns again set the pace, but this time he made no mistake as he led all the way home to take his first ever win in some style too! Barnett and Hazlett filled out the top three with storming drives from the rear of the line up.
The final saw William Brown impress as he raced into the lead, as heat two winner Cairns unfortunately spun out of contention. The star drivers were again racing through from the rear, and this time who was Hazlett who took a decisive win ahead of Barnett and Ollie Williamson. All the young drivers received goodie bags and awards from sponsors Campbell Commercial, whilst the LJN Motorsport lower grade awards went to Williamson and Luke Grattan.

The all action 1300 Stock Car entertained as always, with returnee Davy Morrison taking the opening heat win ahead of Curtis Greer, after Curtis had got the best of a big scrap with Jonathan Brown and Matthew Milliken. Former ProStocks British Champion Morrison repeated the feat in heat two, again taking the win to earn himself an upgrade for the final. Davy Wilson took runner up spot in that one after a blistering last lap that saw the bumpers flying in.
The final was arguably the race of the night, with the destiny of the trophy never clear until the very end. Gary Freeburn, Greer, Jon McQuillan, Gareth Halliday and Milliken all had their noses ahead within the closing stages, as the bumpers were exchanged for fun! Milliken broke clear on the last lap and survived a last bend assault from McQuillan to land a well deserved win with Greer in third.

Newcomer Johua McCahon led the opening Thunder Rods heat before Adam McKinney raced through to win over a rapid looking James Goldie. McCahon again impressed in heat two, this time leading all the way to take his maiden win on the ovals. Liam Wilson and Josh Goligher got the better of a monster scrap in the pack to take second and third.
The final saw McCahon and McKinney have a fight for the top spot, before Strabane man McKinney broke clear and extended his lead out front. As Adam took the win, Daniel Rodgers came on very strong late on to take second after a great drive, with Zack McCombe and Jason Darragh next home.
